Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am specifically looking for John Ball buried in Tomahawk Creek Pittsylvania County Virginia in 1829. He was married to Mary Patton as the verbal and written account goes. They had 10 children who I have an account of. Their births and marraiges and deaths.I have his recorded Will. But I believe everyone is looking for the elusive John Ball of Pittsylvania County VA. Where is he? He is buried there somewhere. Anyone near there that could find him would help a great number of descendents. I am interested in these surnames: Alexander, Arbuckle, Ball, Boo, Gilwater, Feagans (and it's various spellings), Patton, Shelton, Smitherns, Sorge, Warren, Yocum (anybody who has pictures of my grandfather Chester Yocum). My time is spent looking after my elderly parents mostly. But this is my next interest.

If I have asked for a transfer request and it is not within 4 generations or I am not blood related, please consider transferring to me anyway. I am asking because they were married to a relative or the relative has deceased so long ago it is impossible for a person within 4 generations to be alive. I sometimes am the only one interested. I will take good care of them and never delete them. I will also transfer to a closer relative. I much appreciate the work of the volunteers who contribute this service to us. Photos of the headstones are a great confirmation that the person is really buried there.

On a side note I have a pet peeve about contributors who copy verbatim off of a newspaper obituary and include info about the survivors and the living and where they live. Please be respectful about privacy and quit this. If you read the rules, you are not supposed to do that. And also contributors who enter info on a person who they aren't certain is buried there.

I am excited to meet cousins and to help out where I can and love communication with you all.

John Ball - "I am a direct descendant"
Hi LeAna! Have you ever found the gravesite of John Ball of Tomahawk Creek, Pittsylvania?

Also could you forward to me records you have of John Ball (Pittsylvania)? (You posted this offer on the Pvt. Patrick Mahan Find-A-Grave site). You wrote that you are a direct descendent - me too - but of John Ball of Halifax Co, next door, same era.
I think the two John Ball's are related as cousins. Could we confer? Blessings and thanks what you are doing here on Find-A-Grave!

LeAna, I am not related to the Kingsolvers. My husband's Aunt is buried in Morris Chapel ceme.
I took pictures of the stones and posted them for anyone that has family there. You are welcome to what ever I have put on here of your family.

RE: Sherman Ball
Hi LeAna!

I know very little about the Ball family. How many brothers and sisters did Sherman and Clint have? Perhaps we could talk more? I just received a bunch of photos someone found at a Goodwill store. I am in Oregon, where are you? I would love to show you the photos, maybe you can identify some of the relatives...Chris

I just found the link to Ronnie and found the photo that I took of him. Even though it was a long time ago it seems like yesterday. Thanks for posting it.
